yeah the turtle wax 2001...is good ..u can use it on ur side strips ...also on your dashboards...but dont put on the steering as it might slip ....

about poilshing ,i start from the top and then go below ...as when u clean the top....u can spill something onto the doors or the bonnet and mak eit dirty or cause rework ...also the lower parts are always slightly dirtier than the top ..so you might have to use the same cloth on the top ...
also after doing the roof i start waxing the side the sun is ...as there are chances that hot sunlight may fall on the car ...so its always better to wax that part first ...

about teh wax ...allow it to dry to a haze and then Rubbbbbb rubbbbbb rubbbbbb till you are satisfied ...

Thanks for this amazing car care tips, It really brings out the enthu in you. BTW I love washing my car every sunday morning and hate if it rains the same day heehee. This polishing part will really keep out the water drops. so, I will add the wax part also after the wash.
*peace*

Dear Amitabh kaushal,

I m using Crompton Greaves Air Purifier............whichcosted me 2500/--but dont look at price.....the effect we get is so good......it purifies inside atmosphere the way nature does...

It help remove bad odour....cigarate smell.... freshen the inside atmosphere.It works on the principle of negative ionisation.There are 6 razor sharp needles....which gets high voltage supply through pulse transformer thereby emitting negative ions....which attracts dust...bacteria...pollens inside car.... deposite this dust on metal plates which u can clean........it constantly give very fresh air........within an hour or so.....all ur bad odour will be removed.......it can be pluged into cigarate lighter jack.............I m using it since a year.....I remember my long travelling days.....inside airconditioned cabins.....there is lack of fresh air.....hence oxygen......also positive ions are increased inside cabin resulting in headach.....vomiting....but with this air purifier I noticed clean fresh air hours after hours.............power consumption is very negligible.....its a must in city like mumbai...delhi....etc..

I have room air purifier from crompton greaves too which also work in the same way..........................

This product is not sold in shops.....if any one interested....I can pass on the link...its available in mumbai.....their sales person will visit ur house.....

Read this link for negative ions......http://www.negativeiongenerators.com/

Default Coasting

Which in general term known as Teflon coating.Would love to see members' comments on this.I simply advise to use it and it prevents scratches on the body shell and keeps color shiny for atleast 3 years.

I am one who believes that teflon coating is just an eye-wash. Its just a waste of money. Had teflon coated my 2005 Esteem VXI(Silky Silver) from my car-dealer. I wasn't too impressed though. I bought another Esteem VXI(Silky Silver) in 2006 and did the TPC3 Valugard coating done which comes with a 3 years service warranty. I can say it is top-notch. I paid 4.5k and its worth it. The gloss and shine that the paint gives is unmatched by any paint related treatment that i have seen. I don't know about scratches since touchwood there isn't one scratch in my Esteem. But yes the paint is smooth to touch and it repels water very effectively. Overall i say from experience that i feel Teflon Coating is a waste, you can go in for Paint Protection Treatment by either TPC3, Autoglym, 3M or any other reputed center. It maybe slightly more expensive than Teflon but then its well worth it. I am soo happy with the quality of TPC3 that i got the same treatment done for my 1 month old Baleno as well. LOVE IT

cheers

You can get in touch with Mr. Rajesh Manchanda on 9821095545. I got the treatment done at my place itself soo if you interested, you can get it done at your place with prior appointment. There are 3 different types of treatments available namely Royal Guard, Amazing Glaze and top of the line is Valugard. Hope it helps.

You can get micro-fibre towels in Mumbai from TPC3. They cost 200 bicks approx. Contact Mr.Rajesh Manchanda of TPC3 on 9821095545. I have been using it for my Baleno and Esteem. They are very useful for dusting the car-body or windows without any chance of scratching the paint surface. Extremely useful to wipe the car down after a wash. It leaves no trace of lint behind at all. I use these towels to wipe my car dry after a wash and also to clean the interiors since it leaves behind no lint at all and has this amazing magnetic ability to lift off dust particles with ease.

Note- It has a very poor water absorbing ability

Highly recomended for car-lovers who love to keep their rides in spic and span condition.

Please advice me for place in Delhi where i can get this done and whats the right price for this.
